CBI status report shared with Law Minister: CBI tells SC
cancel

New Delhi: The CBI Friday told the Supreme Court that it shared its March 8 status report on investigations into coal blocks allocation with union Minister for Law and Justice Ashwani Kumar and a senior bureaucrat in the Prime Minister's Office.

But the investigating agency's status report of April 26 has not been shared with anyone, including the political executive, CBI director Ranjit Sinha told the apex court.

In an affidavit filed in the apex court Friday, the CBI director said: "I submit that the draft of the same (March 8 status report) was shared with honourable union minister for law and justice as desired by him prior to its submission before the honourable court."

The affidavit revealed that "besides the political executive, it was also shared with one joint secretary level officer each of the Prime Minister's Office, and ministry of coal, as desired by them".

Ranjit Sinha said this in response to March 12 orders of the apex court asking him whether the March 8 status report was vetted by him and whether its contents were shared with the political executive.

However, the CBI director in his affidavit also told the court that the investigating agency's status report of April 26 has been personally vetted by him, and not shared with anyone, including the political executive.
